  • Flexibility with a high reactivity to variable conditions
  • Easy to use for operator

→ Improvements on plant Performances:

  • A clinker quality improved up to 2 Mpa higher at 3 days strength.  
  • A specific consumption reduction with 4% reduction of fuel consumption and 5% reduction of cement mill power consumption.
  • Production improvement up to 4 to 7%
  • A high alternative fuel substitution with up to 100% fluff and 60% saw dust
  • NOx reduction  up to 11% 

Benefits are based on best cases studies achieved performances compared to competitive technologies previously installed. These performances are not all achievable simultaneously.
